Edits to 'https://fairsharing.org/FAIRsharing.mhqkc7' by 'The FAIRsharing Team' at 21:48, 12 Sep 2016 (approved): 'description' has been modified: Before: GENI-ACT allows the community annotation of bacterial genomes via republished sequin files from NCBI GenBank. The database automatically pulls text-based GenBank files from NCBI FTP servers and converts them into an indexed binary form that can be easily searched and queried. GENI-ACT is an initiative of the Microbial Genome Annotation Network (MGAN), which provides authentic and inexpensive research opportunities in microbial genome analysis. MGAN is geared toward high school and undergraduate students. This record originally referenced Xanthusbase|which after 5 years was converted to Openmods. Since that time|the Myxococcus xanthus data has been subsumed into GENI-ACT|which is an independent and updated version of the Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute's IMG-ACT platform. Previous users of IMG-ACT are encouraged to transition over to GENI-ACT. After: GENI-ACT is a resource that allows the research community to collaboratively annotate bacterial genomes. Changes can be suggested to existing genomes and these alterations can be ported back to NCBI Genbank. GENI-ACT also has modules which can be used for educational purposes. Organisations have changed: Previous values: MGAN New values: Microbial Genome Annotation Network (MGAN) Joint Genome Institute (JGI) Informatics|US Department of Energy
